My grandparent's wedding
My Nan wore a gorgeous Norman Hartnell wedding dress. Mr Hartnell was the designer who created the Queen's dresses at both her wedding and coronation! Nan's wedding was in 1948, so it was just after the Queen's wedding in 1947, but before her Coronation in 1953. (For some reason I thought the Coronation was in 1952, I guess because this year is the Diamond Jubilee - 60 years).
Pop looked really hunky. He would have been 23, and had already spent several years serving overseas in WW2. He was in the airforce and Nan was a nurse.
Have an awesome weekend.
